Capstone Consulting Project

The Capstone Consulting Project is the distinguishing hallmark of the Saunders EMBA experience.

Working in teams, students address specific business problems or assess potential opportunities for client companies. Projects are selected to meet specific learning objectives and provide a rigorous learning experience for students and value added outcomes for client companies. Projects are sourced from a broad range of company types—from Multinationals to smaller not-for-profits—and are completed over 4-5 months.

Student Testimonials

  • “During the completion of our Capstone projects and the international trip to China, everyone in my class discovered that in fifteen short months, we could consult with major companies to tackle real business concerns, as well as have a common ground on which to hold discussions in a global setting.”

Company Testimonials

Ultimately, the RIT team’s recommendation was accepted into our strategic business decision process.”
